Crewe Alexandra skipper Matt Tootle has picked up another injury in training.
The 24-year-old had been due to appear for their Under-21 side at Sheffield Wednesday this afternoon.
Striker Lauri Dalla Valle was though expected to line-up against the Owls as he continues his own comeback from ankle trouble.
Defender Tootle hasn’t featured for the Railwaymen because of injury and illness since their home defeat to Sheffield United in late October.
